Still Blowing

After three days of wind up to 30 knots, we have had two real sweet days of wind peaking out at 20 knots, and today should be the same. The forecast then calls for the wind to drop more, maybe too much, for the next several days. I finally got over my fear of throwing a kite loop and was amazed at how easy it was. I was using a 10M kite and it cranks around so quick that it really doesn't yank you too much. My landings weren't perfect, but only once did I dump the kite. I need to watch some videos and refine my technique. It is always so much fun to add a new trick!
Here is a link to a slideshow of all the photos on this blog:


  1. Don-- Not that I know much about wind for kiteboarding, as I just finished the 101 course w/ Jeff, but it seemed like two great days to learn on Thursday and Friday! It was great getting to know you and the dudes on the beach. Hope to see you again down in San Carlos.


  2. Joe, it was good to someone new getting excited about the sport. Those were excellent days and that type of wind should start up again tomorrow, Tuesday, and hopefully give us at least 5 of the next 7 days.
